1. Create a Fill Layer with a mask containing the Polygon Fill painting and add an Anchor Point on top of it.

2. Add a new Fill Layer and the Generator in a mask. Under the Micro Details parameters, turn on the Micro Height and finally select the previously made Anchor point in the Micro Height Channel

Tell me if it helps or if I'm missing your point.
